This is the 'infamous pear tree' that I mentioned in a recent post on "Bogamans Blog" that the squirrels love. I had just finished an Osage Orange bow that is backed with a Diamondback snake skin. I took pictures of it with different backgrounds. The imbedded horse shoe is one of many I have turned up while tilling my garden. I put it here several years ago, pointing up to catch all the luck as is the superstition. X.
The dog collar was worn by a very close friend of mine. Buddy was a Chesapeake Bay retreiver. He is buried under the tree:(
